British comedian turned actor Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) has apparently, following recent reports, not been offered the lead role in the remake of 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'.
Brand was rumoured to be the favourite and most natural selection to play the lead role of transvestite scientist Frank N Furter. His agent denies this...
He says, "It's news to me. It wouldn't surprise me if they wanted him but they would have plenty of hoops to jump through."
The original 1975 movie, which starred Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Meat Loaf and creator Richard O'Brien is set to be remade. In spite of O'Brien's non-involvement and outspoken negativity towards the project.
